  1. My daughter is a junior. Is this something she should attend now or wait until her senior year?

    Is it required that the students attend both days? We already have plans for Saturday afternoon that can’t be changed. Can attendance only be for a portion of the day or Sunday only?

    Will there be a list of colleges given before students register?

    Thank you for your help .

    • I think it is great exposure to audition junior year as it does give admissions time to get to know your daughter before senior year

    • Juniors are highly recommended to attend. She can register for the event and attend what she can. The list of colleges is on this page. Click MORE on the Events details and then scroll down to the college list. Click that link.

    • Definitely start this year, if not already late. In performing arts you have to get admitted by both the institution and the department which means finding that school that fits you and what you want to study.

    • Attend as much as you can.
      The college list is on the website under the event details, click more and scroll to the colleges attending link.

  2. Hi I recently registered my daughter Sofia Forrest-Turner for Las Vegas Sept 16 and 17th. I think I saw that we were required to upload some documents soon, but now I can’t find where I saw this. Can I please ask if we need to upload transcripts a head shot and resume before the audition? Thank you

  3. All of these masterclasses and workshops look amazing! What an incredible opportunity for talented performers who want to hone in on their skills and training to pursue a career doing what they love! I had no idea what colleges are out there that have these kinds of programs so I am very excited to be able to network with them all and give the recruiters a chance to interact with my daughter and give us a chance to interact with them back. I feel like we’ll have a level up when it’s time for her to apply to a college where she will thrive. Thank you for doing this event!

  4. My granddaughter Dasani Kendrick just got into drama recently and she absolutely loves it. It’s new for her so I’m not sure if the Dance Academy is something she can apply for or is even prepared for. It sounds like something for seasoned actors. Resume and head shot neither she nor I really understand what that is. We’re wondering if she should apply?

  5. A few quick questions. As a sophomore I will only be attending masterclasses & I am not able to do the audition portion…correct? With that should I still arrive at 8am for check in? Last one! How do we know what classes we picked? I am not able to recall what number my classes were listed at.
